Textbook Problem

How does atmospheric pressure vary with altitude? Using data from this discussion, prepare a graph of altitude vs. atmospheric pressure and comment on the relationship

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The variation of atmospheric pressure with altitude should be explained and a graph of altitude vs atmospheric pressure based on the given discussion has to be prepared.

Concept Introduction:

  Pressure=ForceArea

Pressure can be expressed in different units. But it is normally reported in mmHg(millimetersofmercury)

Atmospheric pressure vs altitude:

Atmospheric pressure goes on decreases as we move to higher altitudes.

AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is a common problem for avid skiers which have the symptoms like headache, nausea, fatigue etc.

Explanation

AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is a common and major problem facing by avid skiers.  The reason is the relationship between atmospheric pressure and altitude.

As we go to higher altitudes, atmospheric pressure decreases.  This condition will lead the skiers to have symptoms like headache, nausea dizziness etc.

From the given values of altitude and pressure the relation between altitude and pressure can be understood.
